There is no question that Andy Murray played well against Roger Federer.
Wimbledon may not, for now at least, have its long-lost British men's singles champion.
An irresistible Roger Federer won his seventh Wimbledon title with a 4-6, 7-5, 6-3, 6-4 victory over a valiant Andy Murray on Sunday, dashing the world No4's hopes of becoming the first Briton to win the men's singles title in 76 years. The Swiss extended his record grand slam tally to 17 with a performance full of class and the win will send him back to the top of the world rankings for the first time since 2010.
Fourth set: all over 6-4, 5-7, 3-6, 4-6. Federer wins the Championship for the seventh time.
When Jonny Marray asked his Danish doubles partner, Freddie Nielsen, if he fancied teaming up for just their fourth tournament on the final day for wild card applications, he cannot have imagined it ending here with a cup above his head.
Andy Murray admitted the subconscious effect of the "pressure and stress" that weighs on him at Wimbledon every year had left him "very emotional" as he became the first British man to reach the singles final for 74 years.
Just over five years ago Roger Federer, shortly after winning his fifth straight Wimbledon title, let slip his thoughts about Novak Djokovic, at that time the new kid on the block.
For someone who numbers the Invisible Man among his favourite superheroes, Andy Murray will be hard to miss.
